Transport

Getting to College

Getting to Cardinal Newman College couldn’t be easier, as the College is situated within five minutes’ walk from Preston bus station and the city centre, and is also within fifteen minutes’ walk from the railway station. There are a variety of cycle routes into the city and there is provision to store your bicycle within the College grounds. We also have parking available for students, but places are limited and will be allocated on a first-come-first-serve basis.

The College has service level agreements for the provision of transport for our students with all the major transport providers in the Lancashire area: Stagecoach, Preston Bus and Transdev (Lancashire Bus). This allows us to sell travel passes to our students at a greatly reduced cost and gives students the flexibility of travel on commercial network services. Passes are valid for the entire academic year and can be used at all times, including College holidays, evenings and weekends.

Further information about Student Services, application forms and for Bursary Funding and Travel Pass applications will be available on the ‘Newman Portal’ once your application has been accepted by the College.

Organising Your Travel to College

Plan your journey to College

Look at the details of each transport scheme

– Decide which scheme is right for you
– Register with the College using the Transport Application Form
– Complete only the shaded areas of the form
– You can register for transport at this time and make payment later if you wish unless you want to take advantage of the monthly payment option
– The monthly standing order payment is for the full annual cost of the pass and not for a term pass

Choose your payment option

– Payment can be made with your registration; or
– By cheque for the first term or the full year – payable to Cardinal Newman College; or
– In ten monthly payments by completing the standing order mandate (Monthly Payments)
